Organizer/Author
There is a big difference between the promises in the campaign literature, and what Newsom now acknowledges is a watered down version of the Care promised. He will take the cash away, kick one group of people out of shelters, to make room for his group of people in the shelter and call that housing. Progressives need to do more than unmask the deception they must also familarize themselves with the great successes some of the nonprofits are having helping people get back on their feet. People need to be told that there are good programs operating and what is needed is more money for them. The successes need to be emphasized. This is not cheap though, and Newsom's cookie cutter approach and security state orientation is not the way to help people reach their full potential.
